Mother's Day can be difficult for those who have recently lost a mother. It was for me.
I was fine until I went to church and some offered their condolences and started to talk of mothers.
The tears flowed but finally subsided during the first hymn!
When I got home, our son was in his room on the computer and hubby was also on the computer.
I sat in the living room feeling blue. This is not Mother's Day! I am supposed to be surrounded by family; going out for a buffet lunch with my Mom.
My bff, Linda, had invited us over for the afternoon. They were having an Easter Egg hunt for the grands since they were in Reno for Easter. Spring had finally arrived, and even though we needed to wear a jacket at times, we enjoyed the outdoors. There was a wonderful cookout. None of the kids fought (yeah!).
Hubby stayed and watched the baseball game on TV. It was a close game, and getting to an end, but I had to go to the bathroom. Everyone said to go, that I had plenty of time. I got back and our team had won! (Next time I'll hold it).
It turned out to be a good day after all!
